Squaw Valley USA May 23, 2007- Squaw Valley USA is reminding skiers and snowboarders that July 15, 2007 marks the first deadline for early purchase discounts on Squaw Valley winter season passes. The second deadline for reduced rate passes is September 1, 2007, after which the passes are full price.

The Squaw Valley pass provides season-long access to some of the most sought-after terrain in the world. With six peaks, 16 open bowls, three terrain parks, two halfpipes and over 4,000 skiable acres accessed via North America’s most advanced lift network of 34 lifts, there is no wonder why Squaw Valley continues to rank among the highest of North American ski resorts year after year. Squaw’s expansive terrain, state-of-the-art lift network, and convenient parking eliminate the hassles common to ski resorts. Squaw Valley skiers and riders spend less time commuting from the parking lot to the lifts, less time waiting in lift lines, less time combating crowds on congested slopes and terrain parks, and spend more time skiing and riding.

With a bevy of improvements in store for the 2007/08 season, now is a better time than ever to become a Squaw Valley season passholder. Lift upgrades, terrain park additions, a new halfpipe, increased snowmaking, and added value programs for season passholders are all in the works for the upcoming season. Since the completion of a European-style Village, Squaw now boasts over 50 restaurants, 40 shops, and North Tahoe’s liveliest nightlife. This coming season the action in Squaw Valley will ignite as the resort is set host to world-class competitions by day and high energy concerts by night.
